I had made these babies without an ice cream maker. Can you believe it? Yes. Although they ended up not as creamy as I wanted them to, I believe it was because I wasn't able to break up the ice crystals before it became fully solid (meaning, solid enough to eat!). I had made it very late and I had work the following day. I only got to mix the batter a few times.
It was too late for me to take a picture, I had feared that everyone enjoyed it too much! But thank goodness, there was still some left for me to photograph. I was at work, but I've heard raves about it. My sister-in-law even enjoyed it, and my hubby's little cousins couldn't get enough!
My verdict? I was won over. I don't think I want to purchase any store-bought vanilla ice cream anymore. This was divine, despite my personal disappointments about its consistency. It was yum-oh!
You can see recipes about how to make your own ice cream here:
The thing about ice cream is that you can change it the way you want it! Just follow the basic ingredients, edit or add some, and viola! I did not get to follow the recipe EXACTLY, as I've wanted an eggless ice cream. But you can do that, as well.
I think everybody should just stop purchasing store bought ice cream and try home-made ones. I can't wait to make some more in the future, I think Pistachios are actually calling me to mingle them with the rich custardy heavenly frozen cream.
